Whitney Point field hockey holds ceremony, receives championship rings for 2021 state title
WHITNEY POINT, N.Y. (WBNG) - Even though the high school sports season has come to an end, teams are still celebrating their state titles from the 2021-2022 season. The Whitney Point Eagles did just that, as the school hosted a celebration to honor their state championship-winning field hockey team on Tuesday night.
The ceremony included speeches from the athletic department and Whitney Point mayor Jason Somers. The players received championship rings and customized jackets with their names, number, and undefeated record.
The Eagles’ 2021 title was the seventh in program history, sixth under head coach Nicole Huston. Over the course of their 18-0 season, Whitney point scores 132 goals while allowing just ten. The team featured eight Section 4 all-stars, including junior Brenna Bough who was first-team All-State.
“We just clicked as a unit and used each other. That’s how we got as far as we did we used each other and we supported each other throughout the whole way,” Bough said.
“It was fun. This was probably one of my most fun seasons to coach,” said Huston. “There were no ups and downs. They were pretty much even keel the whole season and they were eager to come out and get better every single day. I really enjoyed this season.”
